Police foot chase ends in scuffle; suspect arrest
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Lexington Police officer arrested a man on an outstanding warrant Friday night, but not before a foot chase, scuffle and failed taser attempt, according to investigators.
Police say the original call came-in just after 6:00 p.m. of a man drinking alcohol and looking into the windows of homes in the 100 block of Blue Grass Avenue.
Investigators say when the responding officer arrived on the scene and approached the man, he took off running.
After a foot chase, the officer caught the man, there was a scuffle and police say the officer’s attempt to use a taser on the suspect was unsuccessful because the man had on a thick, heavy coat.
Police say the officer was able to subdue the suspect and take him into custody. Police say no one was hurt. The suspect’s name wasn’t released.
Police say the man was charged with fleeing and evading along with the outstanding warrant. Details of the warrant weren’t immediately available.
